The Epelwaite name has descended through the generations from the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. Their name comes from having lived in the township of Applethwaite, which was in the parish of Windermere in Westmorland (now part of Cumbria). There were also places with this name in Cumberland and in Suffolk, where the first instances of the surname Epelwaite were found. In Old English, applethwaite meant an apple orchard or an area of land cleared for growing apples.

Epelwaite Early Origins



The surname Epelwaite was first found in the county of Suffolk in south eastern England. The Applethwaites were found in Suffolk from very ancient times and sustained the Norman Conquest in 1066, retaining their lands and estates.

The Great Migration



To escape the unstable social climate in England of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Epelwaite were among those contributors: Henry Apllewhate who arrived in Virginia in 1713; Thomas Applewhite who arrived in Maryland in 1676; Henry Applewhaite who arrived in Virginia in 1670.
